The Association for Symbolic Logic (ASL) is an Alonzo Church. The current president of the ASL is Alasdair Urquhart.


The ASL publishes books and academic journals. Its three official journals are

  • Journal of Symbolic Logic (website) – publishes research in all areas of mathematical logic. Founded in 1936, ISSN 0022-4812.
  • Bulletin of Symbolic Logic (website) – publishes primarily expository articles and reviews. Founded in 1995, ISSN 1079-8986.
  • Review of Symbolic Logic (website) – publishes research relating to logic, philosophy, science, and their interactions. Founded in 2008, ISSN 1755-0203.

In addition, the ASL has a sponsored journal,

  • Journal of Logic and Analysis (website) – Publishes research on the interactions between mathematical logic and pure and applied analysis. Founded in 2009 as an open-access successor to the Springer journal Logic and Analysis. ISSN 1759-9008.

The organization also played an important role in publishing the collected writings of Kurt Gödel.


The ASL holds two main meetings every year, one in the United States and one in Europe (the latter known as the Logic Colloquium). In addition, the ASL regularly holds joint meetings with both the American Mathematical Society ("AMS") and the American Philosophical Association ("APA"), and sponsors meetings in many different countries every year.
